There’s been this running theme in my life for the last few years, it’s all about telling your story. When I was doing a lot of photography my business theme was Let me help you tell your story and my own personal motto has been Tell your story for quite some time. Before I became a photographer I was a jewelry artist. I made soldered glass jewelry with butterfly wings encased inside them, I also often included small words and phrases. Many times these were custom orders with words that the client requested because they were so important to them. A name, or date. Something as simple as a reminder to breathe. All of these things were part of someone’s story, and part of what I believe made my Gypsy Wings line so special. Honestly, I believe these things so deeply that I had the words inked permanently into my skin about a month ago.
After making and selling custom jewelry online for 7 years, I finally closed up shop. I loved what I did, but it was time to move on to new adventures. This was about the time I wrote and published Rain Check. However, the desire to create has never left me. I just wanted to do so in different ways… Which is why I ultimately joined Keep Collective.
From their website: a collection of ONE-OF-A-KIND, interchangeable Keepers and Keys. Each one is a wearable touchstone, an instant reminder of the big things, the small things, and all the things that matter.
This customizable collection is the perfect way to tell your story. You can collect different keys (charms) and Keepers (the bracelets and pendants) and wear them in unlimited combinations. As soon as I got a good look at them I was hooked. My favorite part is that everyone gets to design their own, I loved being the creator and designer of Gypsy Wings, but I am so excited to share the opportunity for others to make something of their own that they will cherish.
So, I guess this is my official announcement. I am now a designer for Keep Collective and I look forward to seeing what stories you have to tell. If you are interested if finding out more about the jewelry, feel free to message me here. Or you can join the group I have created on facebook, HERE. I will be hosting some online socials very soon and for anyone local I will be having some here locally as well. If you would like to poke around my shop, feel free! You can find that HERE. <3 <3 <3
